Jet2.com and its Jet2holidays package division are trying to react to the changes made to the UK’s travel list due to COVID-19. The airline has cut back on flights to destinations that suddenly change from Green to Amber List status.
Meanwhile when a country goes green the airline adds flights. Croatia and Bulgaria have been added to the UK’s Green List for travel.
As a result, Jet2.com is adding two new routes to Bourgas (Bulgaria) from Glasgow and Leeds-Bradford for the summer.
The airline will add add additional summer service to Dubrovnik (from Birmingham, Leeds-Bradford, Manchester, London Stansted and Newcastle) and Split (Birmingham, Leeds-Bradford, Manchester and London Stansted).
International travel everywhere remains fluid as COVID-19 cases ebb and flow.
